The American University of Nigeria owned by former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, on Monday sacked over 400 staff.
President of AUN, Dawn Dekle, signed the sack letters stated that the university no longer required the services of the affected staff.
He said, “Ask them to show you their disengagement letters.
“Until now, AUN has operated a student-staff ratio which balance had continued to affect the sustainability of the university
“It would not be realistic for AUN to continue to anchor its administrative structure on an over-bloated personnel whose role do not have significant effect on the philosophy of a development university.
“Thus, consequent upon the university’s new Governing Council vote to restructure the institution in line with its agenda for sustainability, a process of workforce rationalisation had been in the pipeline.
“It is now time for the university to look back, look around and look ahead to ensure that realistic and globally competitive administrative practices can be achieved in structure, strategy and focus.”
